VOSS at Syracuse University School of Information Studies

Our research investigates the role of documents in supporting distributed and virtual organizing. This is done by attending to the practices and doing of science as supported by cyberinfrastructure. The goals of this research are to (1) improve the design of CI while (2) adding to the understanding of how science is enabled through its uses. This is done through examining the ways in which distributed scientific collaboration and virtual organizing for research is intertwined with digital tools and resources.

This project is supported by the National Science Foundation under Grant No. OCI-12-21945 via the VIrtual Organizations as Sociotechnical Systems (VOSS) program. The findings and insights do not reflect the opinion or position of the NSF.
